[Ep 121] Intentional Optimism: Keys for Personal Growth
Talk with Tiana Sanchez
Women leaders have always had to work a bit harder to show that they that matter to others, but they never stop to think about what really matters to them. In this episode of Like A Real Boss, Andrea Johnson shares tips to help women do just that.
Hi there, I’m Andrea Johnson, and I’m an Optimism Expert and Professional Encourager. My mission of helping others find true freedom is expressed through coaching, motivational speaking, podcasting, and building a global community of women, growing through following my six tenets of Intentional Optimism.
I spent my entire childhood and adolescence battling weight gain and, ultimately, bulimia and depression. As an adult, I found several tools to help me manage, including gastric bypass surgery, years of antidepressants and counseling. In 2008, I was diagnosed with early menopause (at age 37), and told I had a 13% chance of a live birth using IVF.
Then, in Feb. 2017, my mother finished her 15-year fight with breast cancer, and I finally sat down and truly walked through all the pain and anxiety and emerged, as if from a crucible, with a new life philosophy – Intentional Optimism.
